Irvington Eco Award

The Village of Irvington receives an Eco Award from the Westchester County Department of Environmental Facilities for achieving the highest waste percent reduction in Westchester County in 2023. Well done DPW!

Irvington had the highest percentage reduction in waste when comparing residential garbage collected in 2023 vs 2022 for Westchester municipalities. In 2022, Irvington disposed of 2,826 tons of waste, and in 2023, Irvington disposed of 2,694 tons of waste, for a reduction of around 4.7% from 2022 to 2023, which was the largest percentage reduction of any Westchester municipality.

Superintendent of the Department of Public Works Greg Neilsson recognized that "This could not be done without having a hands on relationship with the many volunteer organizations within the Village of Irvington."
